Dads play an essential role in the lives of their children. The Dadvocates feel this role should never be diminished due to sexist preconceptions that often permeate family law proceedings. We have dedicated our efforts to protecting father's rights because:

  • Kids whose parents have divorced or separated are happier and more fulfilled when their father maintains a significant presence in their lives.
  • Biases and stereotypes frequently work against men when it comes to matters of family law.
  • We believe that the divorce process should not feel like a punishment for men who are responsible fathers and husbands.
  • Research shows that predators and abusers are less likely to target children whose fathers play active roles in their lives. 

Regardless of any preconceived notions at play in your legal proceedings, our lawyers are dedicated to bringing the truth to light and clearly demonstrating why the outcome must reflect your need to be a part of your children's lives. Ultimately, our focus is your kids' quality of life, and we believe their lives are better when Dad spends as much time with them as possible. The Dadvocates is a law practice that assists men with matters of family law and criminal defense throughout California and Colorado. From our first consultation until court proceedings conclude, we are ready to stand with you.

Spousal & Child Support

Although many consider spousal support and child support to be a man's obligation, the truth is that men are frequently eligible for spousal support, and the number of custodial fathers collecting child support has been on the rise for more than 25 years. Our practice excels at making certain that support payments meet a custodial father's needs, and that a non-custodial father's support payments are within his means. When children are involved, both of these dimensions of support have a significant effect on their best interests.

Parenting Time and Decision Making

We believe children need their fathers. If you are facing a divorce, the attorneys at our various offices can work to make sure you are granted the maximum amount of parenting time and that you have a voice in decisions regarding your child's education, religion, activities, and more. Your family law attorney will present a fact-based argument in favor of maintaining your presence in your children's lives to make sure they benefit from the kind of nurturing and guidance only you can provide.

Property Division

An important part of the divorce process involves dividing property and assets between you and your ex-partner. While some property (such as homes or vehicles purchased during the marriage) is considered joint property, other property (such as items purchased before the marriage or inheritance from one spouse's parents) is not. Our family law attorneys can make sure that you collect the amount of joint property you truly deserve, and that property belonging only to you remains in your possession.

Our Family Law Attorneys Are Ready to Help You

Simple family law cases are rare. Even if you are on amicable terms with your ex-partner or co-parent, the truth is that there is always a risk of oversights or misplaced trust that can affect you for the rest of your life. The Dadvocates are here to make sure men and fathers don't make mistakes that can jeopardize their children's quality of life and their own livelihoods. 

When our firm takes your case, you can take comfort in knowing that our attorneys are taking every measure to help you achieve the best outcome in terms of child custody, support payments, property division, and more. A family lawyer's reputation and track record make the difference between a thriving practice and failure—in other words, it is in our best interest to protect your best interests at all costs. When there is no alternative but to dig as deeply as possible into the evidence to counter false accusations, discredit exaggerated claims, and uncover hidden assets, you can depend on us to take action.
